    Tulsa Sounds Like Trouble To Me

    Well me and trouble never been
    Strangers nor the best of friends
    Well I can find it easily
    I'd assume that it'd find me

    I ain't attached to what I got
    And I'm sure likin' what I see
    I'd follow you to Little Rock
    But Tulsa sounds like trouble to me
    Tulsa sounds like trouble to me

    Had me a gal in Tulsa once
    One day I took her out to lunch
    I got up, excused myself
    And fell in love with someone else

    I ain't attached to what I got
    And I'm sure likin' what I see
    I'd follow you to Little Rock
    But Tulsa sounds like trouble to me
    Tulsa sounds like trouble to me

    I love them Oklahoma hills
    I always have, I always will
    Got an itch to call 'em home
    But I'd live longer stayin' gone

    I ain't attached to what I got
    And I'm sure likin' what I see
    I'd follow you to Little Rock
    But Tulsa sounds like trouble to me
    Tulsa sounds like trouble to me

    Yeah, it's a big ol' country here
    I rambled it from ear to ear
    There's places I'm still welcome in
    But Tulsa it ain't one of them
    Tulsa it ain't one of them

    I ain't attached to what I got
    And I'm sure likin' what I see
    I'd follow you to Little Rock
    But Tulsa sounds like trouble to me
    Tulsa sounds like trouble to me
    Tulsa sounds like trouble to me

    Brand New Heartache

    Well I feel my body tremble
    And I feel my blood run cold
    I'm gonna make a fool of myself again
    By now you'd think I'd know
    I swore that the last time
    I'd learned from my mistakes
    But I think I'm headed for a brand new heartache

    It's a brand new heartache
    Just when I thought that I was free
    But the same old haunting feeling is coming back to me
    Well ain't it all too familiar
    I think I recognize it's face
    Well I'm just not ready for a brand new heartache

    Well Love can give you pleasure
    But it can also cause you pain
    You think the sun might shine forever
    Then Lord here comes the rain
    They say time can be a healer
    Well tell me how long will it take
    'Cuz I think I'm headed for a brand new heartache

    Though I should know better
    Temptation still prevails
    Once again I find myself underneath the spell

    Of a brand new heartache
    Just when I thought that I was free
    But the same old haunting feeling is coming back to me
    Well ain't it all too familiar
    I think I recognize it's face
    Well I'm just not ready for a brand new heartache
    I said I'm just not ready for a brand new heartache

    The Resurrection

    I walked the streets of this little town
    Late last night when it all shut down
    Feelin' stuck between lost and found and nowhere
    Using my memory for a map
    I went lookin? for a train on the torn up track
    Where the weary conductor just turned his back but he?s still there

    Waitin for the resurrection
    Fire from the ashes and the tears
    The resurrection
    You know dreams die hard, dreams die hard around here

    Well it?s hard to believe I?m back again
    Lookin? up old lovers and long lost friends
    Just to reminisce like the veterans and survivors
    I heard Reverend Bill with the kind old face
    Said he got little stale and he?s been replaced
    Still we all bowed our heads when he said Grace at the diner

    Waitin for the resurrection
    Fire from the ashes and the tears
    The resurrection
    You know dreams die hard, dreams die hard around here

    Well the engine dies and the main line fails
    Surely the heart and the soul prevails
    Like the wild flowers grow between the rails in the summer

    Oh, the resurrection
    Fire from the ashes and the tears
    The resurrection
    You know dreams die hard,
    Dreams die hard,
    Dreams die hard around here

    Oh, the resurrection
    Oh, the resurrection

    I walked the streets of this little town
    Late last night when it all shut down
    when it all shut down

    Something Dangerous

    Well ever since Adam said hello to Eve
    What the leaf was coverin' he couldn't believe
    Until this day remains the same
    No matter the face, no matter the name

    She walks through the door in her high heeled shoes
    Ruby lips, merci beaucoup
    Code blue alert, in its finest form
    Note to self, you might be better off gone

    To feel the thrill, you must be brave
    Big love's tough, sometimes you have to pay
    So buckle up and take a chance, throw caution to the wind
    Cause when you walk, you walk a wire and face the consequence

    Somethin' dangerous, Somethin' dangerous, Somethin' dangerous is coming
    Somethin' dangerous, Somethin' dangerous, Somethin' dangerous is near
    Somethin' dangerous, Somethin' dangerous, Somethin' dangerous is coming
    Somethin' dangerous, Somethin' dangerous, Somethin' dangerous is here

    Now i'm running with scissors in the dark of night
    (Somethin' dangerous is comin')
    Half scared to death, half so...alive
    (Somethin' dangerous is near)
    No return to the eden, of that I'm sure
    (Somethin' dangerous is comin')
    I've tasted the apple, girl open the door
    (Somethin' dangerous is here)

    To win a hand, you must be brave
    Big love's tough, sometimes you have to pay
    Buckle up and take a chance, throw caution to the wind
    Cause when you walk, you walk a wire and face the consequence

    Somethin' dangerous, Somethin' dangerous, Somethin' dangerous is coming
    Somethin' dangerous, Somethin' dangerous, Somethin' dangerous is near
    Somethin' dangerous, Somethin' dangerous, Somethin' dangerous is coming
    Somethin' dangerous, Somethin' dangerous, Somethin' dangerous is here
    Somethin' dangerous, Somethin' dangerous, Somethin' dangerous is coming
    Somethin' dangerous, Somethin' dangerous, Somethin' dangerous is near
    Somethin' dangerous, Somethin' dangerous, Somethin' dangerous is coming
    Somethin' dangerous, Somethin' dangerous, Somethin' dangerous is here

    Going Up The Country

    Going up to the country, baby do you wanna go
    Going up to the country, tell me do you wanna go
    We're going to some place that we've never been before

    We're going, we're going where the water tastes like wine
    We're going, we're going where the water tastes like wine
    Gonna jump in that the water, and stay there all the time

    Gonna leave the city, got to get away
    Gonna leave the city, got to get away
    All that fussing and fighting man, you know we sure can't stay

    So baby pack your leaving trunk we got to get away
    Just exactly where we're going you know I cannot say,
    But we might even see the USA (in a Chevrolet)
    It's a brand new game you know I want to play

    No use of you running, screaming and crying
    You got a home girl, long as I got mine

    Jimmy Martin

    Well they call me Jimmy Martin
    And they say that I can sing
    Of them lonesome broken hearted
    Boys of Bluegrass I'm the King

    I was born up in the mountains, I was raised in poverty
    Made a guitar out of nothing but a cigar box and strings
    Took a bus across to Nashville and that's where I was employed
    Pickin' guitar and singing tenor
    With Bill Monroe and his Bluegrass Boys

    Yea they call me Jimmy Martin
    And they say that I can sing
    Of them lonesome broken hearted
    Boys of Bluegrass I'm the King

    Back in 1959, with the Sunny Mountain Boys
    On that Louisiana Hayride, you never heard such wondrous noise
    We tore it up at the Grand Ole Opry
    "Walkin' Shoes" and "Free Born Man"
    But the circle is still broken
    My greatest dream slipped through my hands

    Well they call me Jimmy Martin
    And they say that I can sing
    Of them lonesome broken hearted
    Boys of Bluegrass I'm the King
    Of them lonesome broken hearted
    Boys of Bluegrass
    I'm the King

    Speed of Life

    Time can fly when you're having fun
    Time drags by when you miss someone
    We say hello and we say goodbye
    Coming and going at the speed of life

    You start out crawling then you learn to walk
    You run into someone and then you fall
    The band plays on as worlds collide
    Drums keep beating at the speed of life

    Come on baby ride with me
    Four strong winds, seven deep seas
    A big blue ball flying through space
    Can't turn back not a minute to waste
    Womb to the tomb, blink of an eye
    Everything's moving at the speed of life

    Well I don't know what the future holds
    But I been watching the river flow
    It can sink quick and it can rise high
    Always rolling at the speed of life

    Come on baby ride with me
    Four strong winds, seven deep seas
    A big blue ball flying through space
    Can't turn back not a minute to waste
    Womb to the tomb, the blink of an eye
    Everything's moving at the speed of life
    Lady luck, father time
    Everything's moving at the speed....of life

    Amazing Love

    Amazing love so rich and rare
    Amazing love beyond compare
    A life so full of blessings
    And promises fulfilled
    Be careful not to run and hide
    From this amazing love

    Once as a child I did not see
    That all my deeds returned to me
    But I have traveled miles
    And made a few mistakes
    I've learned about forgiveness
    And found amazing love

    Even though a mother guards her children
    Still they stumble, fall and shed a tear
    Lessons learned and healing hands upon them
    Through the years, through the years

    Was a time when I was so alone and...
    Feeling that my life was incomplete
    Oh my heavy heart was barely beating
    Down so deep, down so deep

    Amazing love now in my arms
    Amazing love to call my own
    A life so full of blessings
    And promises fulfilled
    Be careful not to run and hide
    From this amazing love
    Amazing love...
    Amazing love
    Amazing love

    Stuck In The Middle

    Well I don't know why I came here tonight,
    I got the feeling that something ain't right,
    I get so scared in case I fall off my chair,
    And I'm wondering how I'll get down the stairs,
    There's clowns to the left of me,
    Jokers to the right, here I am,
    Stuck in the middle with you.

    Yes I'm stuck in the middle with you,
    And I'm wondering what it is I should do,
    It's so hard to keep this smile from my face,
    Lose control, yeah, I'm all over the place,
    There's clowns to the left of me, jokers to the right,
    Here I am, stuck in the middle with you.

    Oh well you started off with nothing,
    And you're proud that you're a self made man,
    (yeah you are)
    And your friends, they all come callin',
    Slap you on the back and say,
    Please.... Please.....
    (Come on)

    Well I'm tryin' to make some sense of it all,
    But I can see it makes no sense at all,
    Is it cool to go to sleep on the floor,
    'Cause I don't think that I can take anymore
    There's clowns to the left of me, jokers to the right,
    Here I am, stuck in the middle with you.

    Well you started out with nothing,
    And you're proud that you're a self made man,
    But and your friends, they all come callin',
    Slap you on the back and say,
    Please.... Please.....

    Well I don't know why I came here tonight,
    I got the feeling that something ain't right,
    Well I'm so scared in case I fall off my chair,
    And I'm wondering how I'll get down the stairs,
    Clowns to the left of me,
    Jokers to the right, here I am,
    Stuck in the middle with you,
    Yes I'm stuck in the middle with you,
    One more time
    Stuck in the middle with you
    Yes I'm stuck in the middle with you.

    Earthquake

    I got myself a sweetheart
    A real good steady job
    A house up on the hillside
    Who's price keeps goin' up
    Soakin' in my hot tub
    Life's working out just right
    But then the earth starts shakin'
    Here comes the afterlife

    Earthquake, Earthquake
    Ridin' hell's emotion
    That earthquake, earthquake
    Churning up the fear
    That earthquake, earthquake
    Devil's loco-motion
    That earthquake, earthquake
    Gonna run me outta here

    There's no head on this chicken
    When the ground is on the rise
    I flee in all directions
    And I pray toward the skies
    I've Never been a coward
    Or that extremely wise
    But it doesn't take a genius
    T' know it's time t' say goodbye

    Earthquake, Earthquake
    Ridin' hell's emotion
    That earthquake, earthquake
    Churning up the fear
    That earthquake, earthquake
    The devil's loco-motion
    That earthquake, earthquake
    Gonna run me outta here

    I'm packin' up and goin' to north dakota
    Well I heard it's freezing cold but I don't care
    I'd rather get that frostbite on my fingers
    Than end up crushed beneath my fridgidaire

    So.... forgive me if I'm out of sorts
    I'm really not to blame
    The fault lies with Andreas
    Oh she's messin' up my brain
    I love this sunny paradise
    But hate it's rock and roll
    Oh I can't stand the ups and downs
    I really gotta go

    Earthquake, Earthquake
    Ridin' hell's emotion
    That earthquake, earthquake
    Churning up the fear
    That earthquake, earthquake
    Devil's loco-motion
    That earthquake, earthquake
    Gonna run me outta here

    That earthquake, earthquake
    That earthquake, earthquake
    Earthquake, earthquake
    That earthquake, earthquake
    Oh I'm Gettin' out of here

    That earthquake, that earthquake
    That earthquake, Oh I'm getting out of here
    That earthquake, Bye bye bye bye
    That earthquake, Oh I'm going out of here

    Tryin' To Try

    Throwed a rock through your window
    Just to let you know I love you
    Just to let you know that I care
    And I ain't scared to have you see
    The way I feel

    Blowed a kiss through your keyhole
    Just to let you know I'm breathing
    Oh, Just to try and smack you in the heart
    If I were smart I'd give up
    And go back home

    I'm not tryin' to say I'm sorry
    I'm tryin' to say I love you
    Not tryin' to make excuses
    Nor put myself above you
    I'm not tryin' to rearrange it
    Not tryin' to change it
    The only thing I'm tryin' to do
    Is try ---

    Well I hung out by your back porch
    Just to try and catch you leaving
    Oh, just to catch you unaware
    That's not fair, I don't care
    Cause I ain't proud

    And I leaned on your door bell
    Just to see if you would answer
    Oh, just to see if you would open up
    No such luck, I'll come back when
    you calm down

    I'm not tryin' to say I'm sorry
    I'm tryin' to say I love you
    Not tryin' to make excuses
    Nor put myself above you
    I'm not tryin' to rearrange it
    Not tryin' to change it
    The only thing I'm tryin' to do
    Is try ---

    It's Good to Be Alive

    Life is like a hurricane
    It brings the wind, it brings the rain
    Mud and bone, and tangled vine
    Pick the grape and drank the wine

    Laissez Le Bon Temps... Bon Temps Roule
    Breathing in and out another day
    Laissez Le Bon Temps... Bon Temps Roule
    It's good to be alive

    Roll in the clover bare your feet
    Bees will sting but honey's sweet
    Chickens run but angels fly
    'Cuz God is holding up the sky

    Laissez Le Bon Temps... Bon Temps Roule
    Breathing in and out another day
    Laissez Le Bon Temps... Bon Temps Roule
    It's good to be alive

    Shiny hearses long and black
    Don't come with a luggage rack
    You can't take it when you go
    So let the good, the good times roll

    Laissez Le Bon Temps... Bon Temps Roule
    Breathing in and out another day
    Laissez Le Bon Temps... Bon Temps Roule
    Je Suis Vivant... Vivant

    Shiny hearses long and black
    Don't come with a luggage rack
    You can't take it when you go
    So let the good, the good times roll

    Laissez Le Bon Temps... Bon Temps Roule
    Breathing in and out another day
    Laissez Le Bon Temps... Bon Temps Roule
    It's good to be alive
